Gausman & Moore is committed to helping staff to advance their careers. We understand that this growth benefits both the individual and G&M.
Advancement of Technical Skills, Project Management & Credentials
Department heads work with staff to determine what technical skills and training are needed or desired by their staff. Continuing education is important for earning and maintaining professional credentials. Gaining additional professional credentials benefits both staff and G&M and so is encouraged and supported. Mentoring by senior level staff provides the best training and is included in the expectation in the Roles, Responsibilities, and Expectations of senior level staff. Technical and Management updates are discussed at monthly department meetings. Lunch and Learns and webinars provide training and CEUs. Some additional trainings include: PSMJ Project Managers Bootcamp, Attending local and national professional association conferences such as ASHRAE, ASHE, USGBC.
Leadership Training through Community Involvement
G&M encourages and supports involvement in professional associations and community service organizations as part of being a good corporate citizen in the communities and profession we work in. We also recognize that these organizations provide the opportunity to learn leadership skills outside of the workplace. In Duluth staff is engaged in the Chamber of Commerce, Arrowhead Chapter of Minnesota HealthCare Engineers, USGBC NE Chapter (Chairperson), Skyline Rotary Club, and Twig Hockey Association. Company-wide G&M has had six Presidents of ACEC-MN, more than any other company.
